I went there during an off-season so there's only few people inside. We had to climb some stairs to reach upstairs to enter the cave. The stairs inside the cave were quite small and very slippery so wear appropriate shoes are very advisable. It's not that difficult so kids can enjoy this cave as well. It's just the slippery part...

This is one big cave, I felt like I am tiny ant in it. The fact that it has an opening at the sunny side makes the cave's crooks and crannies visible in amazing details. Climbing up and down along its edge is quite tiring, wear some grippy shoes, many of the stairs are wet and slippery.

Every cave we've visited to date in our travels through Asia was mainly just stalagmites and stalactites. The Fairy Cave included lots of wildlife. Coming inside is like entering Jurassic Park. It's incredible!

It has a constant drops of water ( That's why its called Fairy Cave right), so do wear appropriate shoes so that to avoid any inconvenience. The view inside was great and a good place for picture taking. A must try in a lifetime in Kuching.

VERY steep steps, but so worth it once you're inside. Its absolutely beautiful!! It was worth the trip and worth taking the kids to explore. The place was not busy (we went on a drizzly day and park wasn't "officially" open yet. ) BRING a flashlight and WEAR tennis shoes!! Absolutely do not recommend sandals, and crocs, you WILL slip.

Who doesn't has time to fly to MULU should definitely explore Fairy and Wind cave near Kuching. Perfect for a half day trip, great and easy to explore.

I just stopped by on a motorbike trip and explored a bit on my own. The caves are beautiful, though maybe not as big as those up north.
